Paul and Vera Mae

This is one of my favorite pictures of Paul and Vera Mae. Paul - my husband's father - died in 2005, just a couple of months before my own father died. Vera Mae, Paul's younger sister and only sibling, still lives in Itawamba County, and I have her to thank for sharing this photograph with me. It was taken about 1941 or 1942. Isn't Vera Mae darling in this photograph? She was such a cute little girl.

Looks like the siblings may have been on their way to school.

Mona, This is great, I especially love the overalls. You know when talking with these older people, you sometimes forget what they have seen in their lives. Paul and Vera Mae seen WW2, Korean War, Vietnam and knew what hard (but good) times were. Great Post

Mona, this is a wonderful photo. I don't think Uncle Paul changed too much over the years. It is so cool to see a photo of him at a young age.

Thank you for sharing it with us! Great job!
